When trying to install an update I get the following error: Security update for microsoft.net framework 1.1 sp1 on windows xp (kb2742597)  it loops back to install 1.1 and fails.

2007 MS office sp1 install fails with the following error: the detection failed this can be due to a corrupted installation Database.  SP2 gets the same error.

Any ideas

I would uninstall the .net framework and reinstall.  They are on v4 already so if you uninstall 1.1, you could then install a much newer version or office will install v3 for you and you will get updates to install v4

I have 8 Windows XP SP3 computers and that update fails on all of them.  I would just uncheck it and ignore it.
